Flying to China

I'll be flying to Hong Kong this afternoon to visit one of my best friends in HKUST. Then I'll go back home in Shaoxing for a short while before flying to Beijing for a meaning trip.

The initial purpose for visiting Beijing this summer holiday is to know more young entrepreneurs, especially tech entrepreneurs of similar age, who might be my future partners in a future startup in China. That might sound unreasonable in such a short time(1-2 months), however, I still consider it as a very good opportunity and a wise investment.  Another purpose would be to find the pains in today's Chinese market when I, as a overseas university student, haven't yet known enough about China.

I applied two companies of my top interests- Douban and Xiami, both of which are music related. Unfortunately, Xiami is not recruiting summer internships due to the unpredictable changes in this July's regulation of digital music in China. Douban is good. It's a combination of both tech and a…

Graduated

After finishing the last exam, I'm unofficially graduated. It was a tough and rewarding semester. Here is a summery of this semester in mandarin.

Our success is built on top of other people's helps. Without all the helps, we cannot get that far. I didn't realize this until I came back from the sunday worship when one brother reminds me that Prof.Tan actually prayed for me. Many friends must also prayed for me, otherwise, my life cannot go so well. Most importantly, someone must be hearing and watching. I feel so grateful.

In the facebook profile page, it lists the top 9 friends to thank to in this semester. I'm grateful that I have the opportunity to know you all in my life. Thank you!

I am happy and bright about the future.
